Japanese Woodblock exhibit online

Japanese woodblock prints from the late 19th century are now available to view online. Part of the Open Court Publishing Company records, these prints are from the Sino-Japanese war, and a few from families and other artists in that same time. The majority of these prints were used as war reports and propaganda to keep the public informed about the current status of the battles, as well as to build patriotism, support, and optimism. The exhibit not only highlights the prints, but the artists, parts of a woodblock print and how a print is created.  Christina Bleyer and Joseph Steinbock curated this exhibit.  A traveling exhibit will be unveiled in May 2015.  http://scrcexhibits.omeka.net/exhibits/show/japanese-woodblock-prints
